Artful Dodge Discussion

I would replace Silent Departure for Void Snare so you can return any other nonland permanent as a sorcery, or Unsummon just the same but instant speed. Distortion Strike x2 instead Artful Dodge x4; and two land less, so you can add 4 enchanment to pump up the unblockeable creatures, like Spectral Flight or Ordeal of Thassa

Gotta say I'm kinda jealous of how budget you make your decks... That said! First thing I notice is, no Riptide Laboratory! That needs to go in if you're playing wizards.

Far as making things unblockable goes, I see Archetype of Imagination in the maybeboard, which could help. There's also a number of enchantments and artifacts you could add in favor of some of the random creatures you have that don't fit the wizard theme/don't have as much utility - stuff like Whispersilk Cloak, Aqueous Form, Spirit Mantle, Unquestioned Authority, and Spectra Ward all would make creatures unblockable or pretty much unblockable. Thassa, God of the Sea, of course. Godsend is super effective too, and a generally great card - no one wants to block unless they absolutely have to when that's equipped to a creature (and if that creature has vigilance... mmmmmm). Instant/sorcery wise, Artful Dodge and Crypsis could work. If you feel crazy Sun Quan, Lord of Wu effectively gives everything unblockable too (because really, almost no one except Vela the Night-Clad players are gonna play horsemanship), but he's a bit pricy and horsemanship doesn't really fit the idea... Rogue's Passage is decent-ish.

Most of that stuff is gonna be for single creatures though... You could try Tanglewalker and Deepchannel Mentor, though both of those have their drawbacks.

Last thought I have is since you're playing Derevi it might be a good idea to take advantage of his tappy abilities? Stuff like Winter Orb, Static Orb, Strionic Resonator, Tangle Wire and so on since he can get around those stax cards in various ways.

Helpful, hopefully? Best of luck!

5x cards that make my guys unblockable with 3x of those having rebound is a solid count.. if anything I would add either another Slip Through Space or maybe an Artful Dodge

Also, I have had 4x Lightning Bolt in here for a little bit now.. are you sure you're commenting on the right deck :p

Upvote for the title, I love South Park!

Shadow Rift and Artful Dodge can possibly kill somone with a pumped up kiln fiend type creature. Wee Dragonauts is another solid option.

Yes You got it. I would look to cut some other cards too to increase the rate of flips From Thing in the Ice  Flip but i dort know what You wann to cut tough. You could go down to 3 or 2 copies of some cards. Maybe Put in some hand disruption like Duress? Or just other Utility cards like Artful Dodge to get the Killing blow or something. I think the rate on that You draw an actual spell to trigger the Thing in the Ice  Flip is too low.

This is as budget as I can get at the moment. Thanks for the link to the primers. I'm constantly looking to update this deck with variations on what I should put in. I know the Might of Old Krosa that I have isn't exactly budget, but I happen to have them so I'm playing them.

Distortion Strike, Artful Dodge, and now Slip Through Space are possible additions as well instead of Aqueous Form but all in all, this deck is very similar and copied kinda often. Looking for suggestions.

I prefer Artful Dodge because it can get tossed into the graveyard and still be usable.

I'll playtest the deck some more and I'll see about Mana Leak.
